We are holding a party for retailers, designers and media during the October High Point Market from 3 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 15. The party will mark the final celebration of our 100th Anniversary as well as the debut of the new collection with famed designer Anthony Baratta.
With the purchase of three or more new rugs sized 5’ x 8’ or larger during the October market, receive a 20 percent discount. Also get in on the “pop a balloon for a cash” with rewards of up to $100.
“We invite all of our dealers, designers and other members of the extended Capel family to join us for this festive High Point Market celebration,” said Cameron Capel, vice president of national accounts. “This will be a great chance for everyone to meet Anthony, one of America’s highest profile — and highest energy — designers.”
The party’s festivities will include complimentary wine, ice cream, a cheese platter and cake pops in honor of Capel Rugs’ 100th anniversary year. Baratta will be attending the event and available to meet with retailers and other attendees.
“We are so thrilled to work with this great American company to see our vision through,” said Baratta. It’s been wonderful working with Cameron and her team, and we’re already looking forward to the next collection.”
Known for a uniquely American design aesthetic distinguished by bold colors, ingenious mixes of patterns and scale, and relaxed forms, Baratta founded the interior design firm of Diamond Baratta Design in 1994 with partner Bill Diamond. Together, the two talented designers created a unique creative language that is an eclectic balance between pattern, color, history, luxury and modernity.
In 2010, the Benjamin Moore paint company honored Diamond Baratta Design with its Hue lifetime achievement award for the use of color in architecture and interiors, the first time the award has gone to interior designers. The Diamond-Baratta team also was named one of Traditional Home’s “20 Design Icons” as part of the magazine’s 20th anniversary celebration in 2009.
In 2012, when Diamond retired, Baratta renamed the firm Anthony Baratta LLC. The next year, he opened the Anthony Baratta The Shop in Westhampton Beach, N.Y. The shop features one-of-a-kind furnishings, antiques and accessories as well as custom couture for homes.
Baratta’s initial line includes several collections covering a range of styles, constructions and price points, including some patriotic-themed braids.
“Tony loves America, and America loves him,” said Capel. “He has a bigger-than-life, contagious enthusiasm that fills any room he enters. We can’t wait to share his creative vision with our dealers — and with our consumers. He’s the perfect designer to escort our company into its 101st year!”
With the purchase of three or more new rugs sized 5’ x 8’ or larger during the October market, retailers, designers and other buyers will receive a 20 percent discount. In addition, customers placing a qualifying order on any rug in Capel’s line — both new and existing models — also will have an opportunity to pop a balloon for a cash reward of up to $100.
